Review:

"The entire text is a pleasure to read. This is a first class textbook in which all the major socioeconomic energy issues are examined in a way which makes the reader reassess his own position and attitudes. Highly suitable for energy-related courses at the university level and a valuable source book for libraries." (Energy World 1986)
